Framed by Kosal's archivists comb a vast inventory of conservation materials to retrieve mats and mouldings that best showcase each client's valuables. By giving special attention to each custom framing order, the archivists carry on a tradition that began when the shop first began preserving artwork, keepsakes, and entire refrigerator doors. From in-store to at-home consultations, staff members guide customers toward the framing materials that optimize beauty and longevity. In addition to framing, Framed by Kosal's specialists offer photo restoration and large-format photo printing, and stock the store with a wide selection of art.
We are custom picture framers.
We look forward to getting up each day and working with out customers to make their art look incredible.
We have been doing this for over 36 years and we wouldn't do anything else.
For decades, JCPenney Portraits has welcomed families into its friendly studios, where professional photographers expertly photograph subjects of any age. Digital cameras, professional lighting, and a wide selection of backgrounds all work together to ensure a professional, personalized look for every family portrait, school picture, business headshot, or baby announcement. To customize the session even more, the staff also encourages guests to incorporate items with special meaning such as a baby blanket or a family heirloom. From a first baby portrait to senior pictures and engagement photos, JCPenney Portraits helps to preserve special family memories to come.
After the final flash, clients and a team member head to the viewing kiosk, where they can select their photos and customize them. Beyond traditional printed portraits, memories may also be preserved on high-resolution CD, gallery wraps, wall art, or through JCPenney Portraits' archival program, which allows clients to store and share their portraits online.

Art Center Supply Store's two classically trained master framers have 25 years of experience in matting, mounting, and encasing treasures. Acid-free, museum-quality conservation matting and framing preserves prints of baby's first whitewater rafting trip while inhibiting future wear and tear. Framing prices vary widely based on object and size, running from $3.95 per foot to $60 per foot for handmade Italian framing materials. Art Center?s border buffs also perform dry mounting, a technique reserved for water-sensitive prints in which heat bonds the artwork and mounting board together, similar to when a flock of rubber ducks fly too close to the sun.
